My Skin Is Pretty Bad Right Now



Happy Memorial Day to everyone! Just wanted to give an update since a few things have changed. I believe that my acne treatment has exasperated my eczema or at the very least, some form of dermatitis. Since I restarted differin (less than a pea sized amount) my skin has been even dryer and the flakiness which had gone the way of the wind, is back. My cheeks have at least 8 inflamed (angry red acne) deep spots that started as clogs last week.

I am honestly at a loss. Differin is as mild as they come so what the hell do I try next? I see my derm Wednesday so I'll let you guys know what she recommends. I see my naturopath during the first Wednesday in June to get the results of my body scan. That procedure cost me $450. It's supposed to pinpoint points of inflammation in my body. After this, I'm going to insist on saliva hormone tests and then an Alcat or Elisa test.

I feel so defeated and it's a sucky feeling
